Rebekah Greene
Dr. Rebekah Greene (University of Rhode Island) is a 2016-19 Marion L. Brittain Postdoctoral Fellow at the Georgia Institute of Technology and the Assistant Director of Assessment for the Writing and Communication Program. The pedagogical work described in this article was made possible through a Poetry@Tech Pedagogy Grant at Georgia Tech. Greene's current research projects focus on the representation of material culture in Victorian literature, on the ways that Victorian influences still permeate today’s museums and their technical communications, and on pedagogical methods for introducing students to the literature and culture of the long nineteenth century. Her current manuscript, Uncertain Treasure: Material Culture and the Scottish Adventure, considers the reemergence of the adventure genre alongside the burgeoning Scottish publishing industry in the long nineteenth century. She is a peer reviewer for Victorian Network, a bibliographer for the Research Society for Victorian Periodicals, and the 2019 recipient of the Joseph R. Dunlap Memorial Fellowship from the William Morris Society in the US.
